The Underwear Olympics Are About to Begin


The underwear olympics (NFL Combine) will start in a couple days and everyone will over analyze every single move that these prospects make there. We will even post some incredible combine numbers from some players on this site, but it will all mean absolutely nothing. The combine puts some metrics on some players for their speed on the 40-yard dash and some cone drill and all kinds of other drills, but it all means nothing.

What they do in their underwear says nothing about how they will perform on the football field. Just ask Keenan Allen about that. Where in the combine does it measure a player’s heart? Where does it measure their motivation? Where does it measure their drive?

With all the metrics that are going to be gathered at the combine, all I care about is what they do on the field. All I care about is if they are playmakers and if they can make big things happen. Will the players put in the work to be great and are they teachable?

The combine is entertaining for a little bit, but it really depends on if players can play the game. If they are able to run really fast too, then that is a bonus.

    Hooray!!! Something to ease the pain, until Free Agency starts in early March (which is my favorite part of the offseason). Then, we can all hold our breaths to see which signings TT makes, and THEN we can logically start focusing on the draft, without it being a complete & utter guessing game… lol.

    I’m actually going to watch alot of it just so I can get familiar with all the million dudes coming out. Would be nice to know who the guys are we select in the 5th 6th 7th rounds lol.

    Want to see:

    1) In what order can we set the corners: hopefully there will be worthy options in the 2-3 round.

    2) Are there NT options past the first round: I would sure like to invest in one between round 2-5 but the options I’m reading leave me underwhelmed.

    3) How do the pass rusher look after Clowney, Barr & Mack: I expect the chargers to take one with one of the first 3 picks.

    4) Is there an under the radar WR in the 2-5 round area to keep an eye on.

    I love watching the Combine, but it’s not very often that a record-setter for one of the workouts ends up being very successful in the NFL. If you look at all the current leaders, most of them are/were busts or didn’t have a huge impact at the next level. The only one that really pops out at you is Chris Johnson, and even he isn’t doing great at the moment. Just food for thought.
